Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

May your coming year be filled with joy, magic, dreams and good madness!
I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return.
And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.
And have lots of fun, joy and happiness!

Did you know that…
It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture.
Until 1751 in England and Wales (and all British dominions) the new year started on 25 March – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days (the change to 1 January took place in 1600 in Scotland).
Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year.
During the Middle Ages several other days were variously taken as the beginning of the calendar year (1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, 25 December).
In many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy and the UK, 1 January is a national holiday.

It’s school time again!
Children are probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over…
Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things.
New teachers, new friends, new schedules, new shoes, new notebooks, and maybe even a new school…
Luckily, these “new” worries only stick around for a little while.
But it’s not easy…
Switching from the laid-back fun in the sun of summer to rules, homework, and routines can be a big jump for parents and children alike. The transition from summer fun to school rules can stress out kids. But with a little preparation and the right attitude, it doesn’t have to be so hard.
Get a Back To School Gift for your child to release the stress a bit.

As a child, you must have rushed to get your hands on a delicious frozen treat whenever you heard the ice cream truck drive by. Ice cream trucks were a source of frosty happiness.
Vibrant stickers of assorted, frosty ice cream treats were strewn across the truck’s sides, seeming so real and tasty, our mouths watered in anticipation.
There were chocolate nut cones, ice cream sandwiches and assorted ice pops in every flavor. Strawberry Shortcakes, Chocolate Eclairs and Cherry Bombs to name just a few…
And there was an ice cream of all – the Buried Treasure!
It was called the Buried Treasure because you had to eat all the raspberry ice cream to discover the “treasure” deep inside.
An imprint on the plastic stick! It might be a lion, a dog, or even a funny clown. Whatever it was, it was well worth the wait!

Tomorrow (11th August) is a special family holiday to celebrate: Sons’ And Daughters’ Day.
The relationship of a son towards both his parents is very complex.
A son will likely feel a close bond with his mother, yet see his father as an adversary and competitor.
When a son sees how his father interacts with his mother he will either attempt to model his father’s behavior or reject his father’s example of relationships with woman.
From the parents’ point of view, having a son can be one of the greatest joys they will ever experience but also one of the greatest challenges. Balancing the need to offer freedom to your son while placing appropriate boundaries may be an area of contention.
Tell your son that he is very precious to you on Son and Daughter Day with a nice homemade present.
